Abstract

By analogy with the representation of the polarization of light on the Poincaré sphere, we describe the propagation and the reflection/transmission of light in a multilayer on a hyperbolic surface. We show that the propagation of light corresponds to a classical rotation on this surface and that its reflection/transmission corresponds to a hyperbolic rotation.
